There were so many new bands in late 1980 that I decided to put together a collection and use the proceeds to record a few. - which we did.

This had a nice Terry Hogan sleeve, which got widely bootlegged on T-shirts, although we sold a fair few of our own. The album launched many of the bands who made an impact in the next year or two.

It only sold a few thousand and has never, despite intent, ended up on CD, but was immensely influential and its story is told here.

There is a chance that a CD will eventuate in 2011.

REV 202: Blam Blam Blam - Blam Blam Blam
March 1982 (Festival cat # L20012. Vinyl only.)
A1: There Is No Depression In New Zealand
A2: Got To Be Guilty
A3: Maids To Order
B1: Battleship Grey
B2: Blue Belmonts
B3: Respect
A1 & A2:Recorded at Harlequin Studios, Auckland, May 1981. Produced by Blam Blam Blam. . A3 to B3: Recorded at Harlequin Studios, Auckland, February and March 1981. Produced by Blam Blam Blam and David Rudolph. All tracks Engineered by Doug Rogers. Artwork by Richard Von Sturmer from an original screenprint by Blam Blam Blam.

The Australians wanted to combine the two Blams releases to date (REV 10 & REV11) so it made sense for us to do the same and compile a mini album, which we did, releasing it in New Zealand using Australian pressings.

REV 203: The Screaming Meemees - If This Is Paradise I'll Take The Bag
June, 1982 (Festival cat #s L 37415 & L 37681) Also on cassette (REC 203 / C 37415)
A: Your Accent

A5: What Do Eyes See
A6: Sunday Boys

B4: Orson Welles
B5: Miro Miro
Recorded at Harlequin Studios, Auckland, November 1981- May 1982. Produced by Ian Morris, Engineered By Steve Kennedy. Artwork by Peter Urlich. Photography by Kerry Brown.

The debut and only Screaming Meemees album. It reached number eight on the album chart.

The album was extraordinarily well produced by the late Ian Morris in some very uproarious sessions and has held up over the years developing a reputation as a post-punk masterpiece. It was remastered by Alan Jansson in 2009.

The critical response internationally (and especially from the US where Trouser Press and a raft of others loved the album) was uniformly positive.

REV 204: Blam Blam Blam - Luxury Length
May, 1982 (Festival cat #s L 37414 & L 37682). Also on cassette (REC 204 / C 37414)

B1: Time Enough
B2: Learning To Like Ourselves Again
B3: Businessmen
B4: Pensioner Love (Featuring Dick Driver)
B5: Call For Help (Featuring Ivan Zagni)
B6: Last Post
Recorded at Harlequin Studios, Auckland, October 1981 to March 1982. Produced by Blam Blam Blam and Paul Streekstra, Engineered By Doug Rogers and Paul Streekstra. Track B1 originally recorded by Roy Thomas Baker, remixed by Paul Streekstra and Blam Blam Blam. Artwork by John Reynolds.

The debut Blams (there was a live album on Propeller / CBS too in '84) album. It reached number two on the chart and was a gold album.

The original John Reynolds artwork was stolen from Festival Records warehouse by a Festival staff member and remains missing.

A varied and rather pleasing album that is something of a New Zealand classic. The first sessions were produced by Roy Thomas Baker (Queen's producer) who made the band sound like Foreigner - they were remixed thank god. The planned UK release of this, on Virgin, was under negotiation when the band had their van crash and split, so it sadly never eventuated. .

REV 205 : The Birthday Party - Junkyard
November, 1982 (Festival cat # L 37419)
A1: She's Hit
A2: Dead Joe
A3: The Dim Locator
A4: Hamlet (Pow, Pow, Pow)
A5: Several Sins
B1: Big-Jesus-Trash-Can
B2: Kiss Me Black
B3: 6" Gold Blade
B4: Kewpie Doll
B5: Junkyard
All tracks recorded at A.A.V. Melbourne, except tracks B2, B4 recorded at Matrix London, December 1981 to February 1982. Produced by The Birthday Party. Recorded by Tony Cohen and Richard Mazda. Artwork by Neville Brody and (front cover) Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth.

We released the second and third Birthday Party albums in NZ (and co-toured them). They had great reviews, and it was a buzz to actually get them out in NZ, but lousy sales. This sold virtually nothing despite it's now classic status and initially Festival declined to distribute this album as they thought they were, to quote, "rubbish" - .thanks Victor.

As the pre-release reviews came out, they relented.

See the Propeller 7" page for production details. Compiled by Paul Rose and Simon Grigg. Front cover drawing by Mike Thompson. Artwork by Simon Grigg. Mastered by Doug Rogers at Harlequin Studios, Auckland, September 1982.

A timely compilation of the early Propeller singles which sold fairly well. A terrible sleeve, by me, but the music worked and it sold very well.

First 500 copies came in a black and white sleeve with no wording on the front.

REV 207: Don McGlashan & Ivan Zagni - Standards

A2: Lost Children - Part One
A3: This Is A Love Song - Part One

B2: First Day
B3: Lost Children - Part Two
B4: Hustau Visits
Recorded at Last laugh Studios, Auckland, September / October 1982. Produced by Don McGlashan and Ivan Zagni, Engineered By Martin Williams. Artwork by John Reynolds

More a mini album than a full album. A fairly avant garde release which some Blam's followers found a bit difficult.

Another John Reynolds sleeve, which lost some of the letraset on the way to the printers. It sold very well though. Never on CD.

REV 208: No Tag - Can We Get Away With It
March, 1983 (Festival cat # L29012)
A1: Doc Martens
A2: Wink Wink
A3: Secret Mission
A4: Live In Sin
A5: Hang On
A6: Legalised Dogs
B1: Fire On The 5th Floor

B5: Mistaken Identity
B6: To Be
B7: No Tag
B8: What A Great Country This Is (Like Fuck it Is)
Recorded at the Reverb Room, Auckland, December 1982. Recorded by and Produced by Terry King.

A live album and rough as can be - but that was the whole point.

Festival didn't appreciate the skinheads designing and laying out the sleeve in their foyer during a retailers conference either.

The final track was an alternative national anthem which was massive live and a huge student radio hit.

REV 209: Various - We'll Do Our Best
March, 1983 (Festival cat # L28001)
A1: The Diehards - Hit That Beat
A2: Double Man - Sheep In A Shed
A3: The Wastrels - Angels In Silence
A4: Eight Living Legs - No Cheap Ride
A5: Sid, Mark & James - Crazy Stupid, Beautiful Too
A6: Car Crash Set - Toys
B1: Ballare - Dancing
B2: Terrors Of Tinytown - Deep Inside
B3: Diatribe - Contamination Blues
B4: Days Centrale - I Don't Understand
B5: Compulsory Allies - No Oppression
Recorded at Harlequin, Last Laugh, Mandrill, Progressive, Innovation and Mascot Studios. October 1982 - February 1983. Complied by Simon Grigg, Paul Rose for Propeller; and Andrew Boak, Andrew Hawthorne for bFm. Artwork by Simon Grigg.

The sequel to Class Of 81 - a compilation of new bands put together with Radio B's managment. The album was far more experimental than its predecessor with several tracks representing the wave of new electronica sweeping Auckland - a direction Propeller would likely have followed if I hadn't wound it down.

The cover was lifted off a Wolf Cubs book I owned and was an homage to the legendary Terence Hogan who defined post-punk sleeve design in the earloy 1980s in Auckland. The first few hundred were pink with black drawing and lettering.

2REV 210 : Various - Bigger Than Both of Us
August, 1988 (Festival cat # L 60037/8) also on cassette (2REC 210 / C 60037/8), and on CD (Propeller RED 210, Festival's cat # D 60037/8) issued in 1990.
For track listing and details go to the BTBOU page
Reissued on CD as REV 505 (see below)
Re-mastered at Mandrill Studios, Auckland, June / July 1988 by Roland Morris. Artwork by Chad Taylor / Thermostat. Liner notes by Murray Cammick, Harry Ratbag, Barry Jenkins, Colin Hogg and Simon Grigg. Compiled by Simon Grigg with Simon Baeyertz.

A collection of New Zealand indie singles released between 1979-82. Thirty important and timeless tracks from all the indie labels of the time. I was inspired by the great Australian sixties compilation 'So You Wanna Be a Rock'n'Roll Star'.

Artwork by Chad Taylor and compiled with assistance Simon B from Festival. A set that defined an era rather well if I say so myself.

REV 401: Various - Doobie Do Disc (Australian edition)
April 1983 (Festival cat # L20023)
A1: Blam Blam Blam - Don't Fight It Marsha, Its Bigger Than Both Of Us. Original release on REV 14
A2: The Miltown Stowaways - Reptiles. Original release on REV 23
A3: The Prime Movers - Crying Again. Original release on FUR 5
B1: The Screaming Meemees - See Me Go (Version). Original release on REV 8X
B2: The Bongos - Falling. Original release on REV 20
B3: The Dabs - Remember When. Original release on REV 19
Sleeve by Simon Grigg. Compiled (I think) by Victor Stent and some bozo in Sydney.

Festival Australia picked up their option and got it wrong - what a mess. I sat in the Sydney boardroom and was told "we've handled punk rock before" as they pointed to Joe Jackson on the wall. They recompiled this with the wrong tracks, wrong mixes and didn't ask.

The first I knew of it was when I arrived in Sydney.

Tracks All Produced by Blam Blam Blam with (Tracks 4, 9 to 17 and 19) Paul Streeksta, (Track 18) Steve Garden, and (Track 5) David Rudolph. Compiled by Simon Grigg & The Blams. Sleeve by John Reynolds and Jane Winton.

As the title says, everything, bar one track which the band didn't want to include.

The sleeve was compiled from posters etc but could've benefited from more information, however it was the band's call.

Reverted to Blams ownership in 2002. I didn't have to, and I guess could be described as nuts but I gave all masters back to them.

The Soundtrack to the TV Series "Give It a Whirl-New Zealand Rock'n'Roll Stories". The two CDs attempted to give a wider view of NZ music history than is often portrayed.

Unfortunately, out of our control, the second part of the second CD was rather badly watered down which weakened the package somewhat.
